Deep House Bass and Keys
« on: April 29, 2022, 10:04:43 am »
Hello everyone - I am into Deep and soulful house.. The kind that was big in the late 90s and into the 00's. It still big today for some people.. I am a big fan of Kerri chandler and people like Sean Mccabe. I have the V8 collection as I want to move away from samples and start making my own sounds :-)

As you can tell I am quite new to the ARTURIA collection and was after some help.. Could people recommend what synth or piano etc to use to create some bass sounds and some keys that fit the genre - I have spent a long time and it sounds - well a tad rubbish :-) Could anyone point me in the correct direction and I can have a play with what is recommended - Some tracks below are the kind of sounds I like

Hi,

Using Arturia applications.
Example 1: If you mean the Piano, then i would try Piano V2.
Example 2: For the Organ i would try B3 V2 first.
Example 3: For the Electric Piano i would try Stage-73 V2.
For the Strings perhaps Juno-6 V, but also other applications like ie Solina V2. Even organs like Farfisa V and VOX Continental.

For the basses i don't know what to suggest. Perhaps start with DX7 V, Juno-6 V (106, 60) and CZ V as i think those where synths used for house music. Not only for Bass.
Both DX7 V and CZ V can import sysex sounds. I believe many House bass sounds was edited DX7 presets. Juno-6 is a easy to use synth.

Other synths can also be used. I assume many synth has been used in house music over the years.

Effects, EQ and other processing can be a part of the sound. So can the chords/ notes.

I exspect you will and shall create your own sounds.
Recreating sounds 100% can be hard.

FYI: Very often a lead can be a good bass and the other way around.
